Rep. Bacon to Newsmax: Infrastructure Vote Removed Squad's Leverage

Rep. Don Bacon was one of the 13 House Republicans who has drawn fire for voting for the $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill, but he told Newsmax Thursday he hopes the Democrats' other bill, for $1.75 trillion to fund President Joe Biden's "Build Back Better" agenda "falls apart and dies a quick death."

"Folks don't realize there's so much misinformation on the bill that we voted on last week," the Nebraska Republican said on Newsmax's "National Report." "People were trying to attach these two bills together, but in reality, a vote for the hard infrastructure removed the leverage that the 'Squad' had on this bill."
